New treatments are greatly needed for patients with recurrent glioblastoma. Metronomic temozolomide is a standard treatment option but has, at best, modest activity. The nanoliposomal irinotecan may be much more active than the parent compound irinotecan since nanoliposomal irinotecan's ability to cross the blood brain barrier is improved. This phase I study will establish the MTD of the combination of nanoliposomal irinotecan in combination with temozolomide safety and preliminary clinical efficacy of the combination of nanoliposomal irinotecan and metronomic temozolomide.

The primary objective of the study is to determine the efficacy of Avastin in combination with temozolomide and irinotecan in terms of response rate and progression-free survival. The seco...
This 2 arm study will compare the effect of Avastin + irinotecan versus temozolomide, in combination with conventional involved field radiotherapy, in patients with newly diagnosed gliobla...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide and irinotecan, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from...
RATIONALE: CT-322 may stop the growth of glioblastoma multiforme by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan, work in different ways to stop the gro...
This investigation is not only to develop an improved radiation/temozolomide approach, but also develop a regimen with potential to form the basis of better combined therapy with immune ba...
Evaluate the toxicity and efficacy of adjuvant temozolomide (TMZ) and irinotecan (CPT-11) for 12 months following concurrent chemo-radiation in newly diagnosed glioblastoma (GBM).
In glioblastoma multiforme, the balance between the procoagulant system, anticoagulant system and fibrinolytic system is impaired in favour of hypercoagulability. The aim of this study was to compare ...
Preclinical studies have suggested promising activity for the combination of disulfiram and copper (DSF/Cu) against glioblastoma (GBM) including re-sensitization to temozolomide (TMZ). A previous phas...
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most malignant tumor of the central nervous system, and chemoresistance blunts the effect of temozolomide (TMZ) in the treatment of GBM. Clarifying the underlying ...
Patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) have an average life expectancy of approximately 15 months. Recently, statins have emerged as a potential adjuvant cancer therapy due to their ability to in...
Benign and malignant central nervous system neoplasms derived from glial cells (i.e., astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, and ependymocytes). Astrocytes may give rise to astrocytomas (ASTROCYTOMA) or glioblastoma multiforme (see GLIOBLASTOMA). Oligodendrocytes give rise to oligodendrogliomas (OLIGODENDROGLIOMA) and ependymocytes may undergo transformation to become EPENDYMOMA; CHOROID PLEXUS NEOPLASMS; or colloid cysts of the third ventricle.

A skin and mucous membrane disease characterized by an eruption of macules, papules, nodules, vesicles, and/or bullae with characteristic "bull's-eye" lesions usually occurring on the dorsal aspect of the hands and forearms.
A variant of bullous erythema multiforme. It ranges from mild skin and mucous membrane lesions to a severe, sometimes fatal systemic disorder. Ocular symptoms include ulcerative conjunctivitis, keratitis, iritis, uveitis, and sometimes blindness. The cause of the disease is unknown.
A malignant form of astrocytoma histologically characterized by pleomorphism of cells, nuclear atypia, microhemorrhage, and necrosis. They may arise in any region of the central nervous system, with a predilection for the cerebral hemispheres, basal ganglia, and commissural pathways. Clinical presentation most frequently occurs in the fifth or sixth decade of life with focal neurologic signs or seizures.
Condition characterized by large, rapidly extending, erythematous, tender plaques on the upper body usually accompanied by fever and dermal infiltration of neutrophilic leukocytes. It occurs mostly in middle-aged women, is often preceded by an upper respiratory infection, and clinically resembles ERYTHEMA MULTIFORME. Sweet syndrome is associated with LEUKEMIA.
